Retailers large and small count on season to help face economic challenge

Holidays and that ‘small-town charm’ BY PAUL GOTTLIEB PENINSULA DAILY NEWS


Port Townsend Main Street Executive Director Mari Mullen, left, delivers a supply of ornaments and tickets to Sideshow Variety owner Holly Green. The ornaments are on sale to benefit the Main Street program.

Today’s traditional start of the holiday shopping season was set to begin late Thanksgiving night for some North Olympic Peninsula residents, before sunrise this morning for others and later today at more humane hours for still others. It’s all part of retailers large and small wanting to create a niche for themselves — in challenging economic times and on a broad playing field — during the three-day, post-Thanksgiving weekend by offering special promotions, employing social media, opening their doors in today’s wee hours or offering

timed sales of certain products. It’s about tailoring a strategy based on your customers, business leaders said. “That’s the way of the future for small businesses to survive,” said Russ Veenema, executive director of the Port Angeles Regional Chamber of Commerce, in a sentiment echoed by Mari Mullen, executive director of the Port Townsend Main Street Program. “It’s about knowing your business and knowing your brand,” she said. “We can’t compete on the same level as Macy’s. We really have to be about smalltown charm.” TURN

PORT ANGELES — Boosters of all-week winter access to the popular Olympic National Park destination of Hurricane Ridge say it’s time to strap on those snowshoes and grab the mittens.

Previously, Hurricane Ridge Road was open only Fridays through Sundays plus Monday holidays.

Quilcene fire chief interviews next week Commissioners due to quiz seven applicants, including interim boss BY CHARLIE BERMANT PENINSULA DAILY NEWS

QUILCENE — The search for a new Quilcene fire chief will kick into high gear Dec. 1, when seven applicants for the job will be interviewed in an all-day session. The new chief will replace Bob Low, who resigned in June after saying he could no longer work with two of the three fire commissioners, Mike Whittaker and Dave Ward. Low was named assistant chief

of support services for East Jefferson Fire-Rescue in July, and a recall action, now in progress, was instituted against Whittaker and Ward over the board’s creating an $800-a-month job for Ward in January 2010. The schedule for the interviews of chief candidates was determined at a fire commissioners meeting last Monday. Commissioner Debbie Randall said Tuesday that the seven candidates — five from Washington

Moser, who did not apply for the open chief’s position in 2009 for health reasons, said Tuesday that he didn’t expect to be a permanent chief. “If they don’t see anyone who’s really good chief material, they can bring me in for another year or two until things straighten out and this black cloud over the district lifts,” said Moser, who then joked, “I just applied to confuse things.” The next step in the recall proceeding is a hearing at 1:30 p.m. Dec. 16 in front of Kitsap Superior Court Judge Anna Laurie in Port Orchard.

ANNE MCCAFFREY, 85, whose vision of an interstellar alliance between humans and dragons spawned two dozen Dragonriders of Pern novels, has died in Ireland, her publisher and family announced Wednesday. Random House said the Cambridge, Mass.-born author died of a stroke Monday at her rural residence south of Dublin, her home for four decades. She christened her selfdesigned house Dragonhold. Ms. McCaffrey turned to the male-dominated world of sci-fi writing after dabbling in singing and amateur acting. She was the first woman to win the top two prizes for science fiction writing, the Hugo and the Nebula, in 1968 and 1969 respectively following publication of her first two novellas set on the fictional planet of Pern. Ms. McCaffrey moved to Ireland in 1970 after filing for divorce from her husband of 20 years. Her popularity surged with the 1978 publication of The White Dragon, which completed her original trilogy begun in the late 1960s. It was her only novel to break into The New York Times best-seller list. But she maintained a prolific writing pace, producing a further 21 novels set in Pern at various periods of its imagined history. Over the past decade as her health faded, she increasingly collaborated with her son Todd, who coauthored five Pern-based



Passings novels and wrote three others on his own. The 23rd novel, Dragon’s Time, was published in June with mother and son sharing the writing credit, while the 24th, Sky Dragons, is set for publication next year.

_________ JIM RATHMANN, 83, won seven times on auto racing’s biggest stages. Son Jimmy Rathmann said in an email message to Indianapolis Motor Speedway Mr. Rathmann officials that in 1950 his father died Wednesday at a hospice facility in Melbourne, Fla., nine days after having a seizure at his home. Mr. Rathmann was a regular on the IndyCar circuit from 1949-1963 but had to settle for second in 1952, 1957 and 1959 at Indianapolis. Then, in 1960, he finally broke through in one of the greatest two-man battles in 500 history. Over the final 250 miles, he and defending champion Rodger Ward engaged in a test of wills. They traded the lead 14 times in two hours, rarely running more than a few feet apart while fighting worn tires and guessing at fuel mileage relayed to them only by pit board. With three laps to go, it looked as if Mr. Rathmann would once again finish second as Ward continued to lead the race. But when

Ward noticed the discoloration in the center of his right front tire, he had to slow down just to stay in the top two. Mr. Rathmann nursed his car back to the lead, winning the race at a thenrecord speed of 138.767 mph to avoid being the only fourtime runner-up in 500 history.

Today’s Highlight in History: ■ On Nov. 25, 1986, the IranContra affair erupted as President Ronald Reagan and Attorney General Edwin Meese revealed that profits from secret arms sales to Iran had been diverted to Nicaraguan rebels. On this date: ■ In 1783, the British evacuated New York, their last military position in the United States during the Revolutionary War. ■ In 1881, Pope John XXIII was born Angelo Giuseppe Roncalli at Sotto il Monte, Italy.

■ In 1908, the first issue of The Christian Science Monitor was published. ■ In 1940, the cartoon character Woody Woodpecker made his debut in the animated short “Knock Knock.” ■ In 1957, President Dwight D. Eisenhower suffered a slight stroke. ■ In 1961, the first nuclearpowered aircraft carrier, USS Enterprise, was commissioned. ■ In 1963, the body of President John F. Kennedy was laid to rest at Arlington National Cemetery; his widow, Jacqueline, lighted an “eternal flame” at the gravesite. ■ In 1973, Greek President

George Papadopoulos was ousted in a bloodless military coup. ■ In 1999, 5-year-old Elian Gonzalez was rescued by a pair of sport fishermen off the coast of Florida, setting off an international custody battle. ■ In 2002, President George W. Bush signed legislation creating the Department of Homeland Security and appointed Tom Ridge to be its head. ■ Ten years ago: As the war in Afghanistan entered its eighth week, CIA officer Johnny “Mike” Spann was killed during a prison uprising in Mazar-e-Sharif, becoming America’s first combat casualty of the conflict. ■ Five years ago: A police

shooting outside a strip club in Queens, N.Y., resulted in the death of Sean Bell hours before his wedding. Two officers were later indicted for manslaughter while a third faced lesser charges; all three were acquitted at trial. Israel and the Palestinians agreed to a cease-fire to end a fivemonth Israeli military offensive in the Gaza Strip and the firing of rockets by Palestinian militants into the Jewish state. ■ One year ago: Incumbent Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri alMaliki cemented his grip on power, bringing an end to nearly nine months of political deadlock after he was asked to form the next government.

Guns trigger sticky situation for Obama BY ERICA WERNER THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

WASHINGTON — They are fuzzy about some issues, but the Republican presidential candidates leave little doubt about where they stand on gun rights. Rick Perry and Rick Santorum go pheasant hunting and give interviews before heading out. Newt Gingrich and Herman Cain speak to the National Rifle Association convention. Michele Bachmann tells People magazine she wants to teach her daughters how to shoot because women need to be able to protect themselves. Mitt Romney, after backing some gun control measures in Massachusetts, now presents himself as a strong Second Amendment supporter. President Barack Obama, on

the other hand, is virtually silent on the issue. He has hardly addressed it since a couple months after the January assassination attempt on Rep. Gabrielle Giffords in Tucson, Ariz., when he promised to develop new steps on gun safety.

Tucson survivors He still has failed to do so, even as Tucson survivors came to Capitol Hill last week to push for action to close loopholes in the background check system. Democrats have learned the hard way that embracing gun control can be terrible politics, and the 2012 presidential election is shaping up to underscore just how delicate the issue can be. With the election likely to be decided largely by states where

hunting is a popular pastime, like Missouri, Ohio or Pennsylvania, candidates of both parties want to win over gun owners, not alienate them. For Republicans, that means emphasizing their pro-gun credentials. But for Obama and the Democrats, the approach is trickier. Obama’s history in support of strict gun control measures prior to becoming president makes it difficult for him to claim he’s a Second Amendment champion, even though he signed a bill allowing people to take loaded guns into national parks. Administration officials said they are working to develop the gun safety measures promised after the Giffords shooting, and they said have taken steps to improve the background check system.

World: Rival Palestinians talk but agree on little

DATA FROM BOTH sides sides of the border suggest illegal immigration from Mexico is in fast retreat, as U.S. job shortages, tighter border enforcement and the presence of criminal gangs on the Mexican side dissuade many from making the trip. Mexican census figures show fewer Mexicans are setting out and many are returning — leaving net migration at close to zero. Arrests by the U.S. Border Patrol along the southwestern frontier, a common gauge of how many people try to cross without papers, tumbled to 304,755 during 11 months ending in August, extending a steady drop since a peak of 1.6 million in in 2000.

A TYPOGRAPHICAL TYPOGRAPHICAL ERROR has led to the election of the wrong man to a finance board in Derby, Conn. James J. Butler was the highest vote-getter, winning 1,526 votes for the 10-member Board of Apportionment and Taxation, which monitors the town’s finances. However, his father, 72-year-old James R. Butler, was the candidate nominated by Democrats. He said he wants the job and that his son is not interested in public office. James J. Butler, who is 46, would not comment on whether he wants the job. But he called city officials incompetent for confusing him with his father.

A COURT IN Egypt has ordered the release of three American students arrested during a protest in Cairo, a lawyer in Philadelphia confirmed Thursday. Derrik Sweeney, Luke Gates and Gregory Porter, who attend the American University in Cairo, were arrested on the roof of a university building near Cairo’s iconic Tahrir Square on Sunday. Officials accused them of throwing firebombs at security forces fighting with protesters. Attorney Theodore Simon, who represents Porter, a 19-year-old student at Drexel University in Philadelphia, said he is still waiting to find out if the students actually have been set free.

Western-backed Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas and Hamas chief Khaled Mashaal talked for two hours in Cairo but did not reach agreement on touchy matters like the composition of an interim unity government and a date for elections. The meeting raised new questions about whether the rivals are serious.

Nilles said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been working on [city officials], pestering them a few times.â&#x20AC;? The pathway is expected to be completed by Christmas. During the check-presentation ceremony Monday in Walmartâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s entryway, Etchells said the company made the donation to â&#x20AC;&#x153;make the community a safer place to be.â&#x20AC;? Etchells said he and store manager Ruiz, who has worked at the Sequim store for 10 years, walked along Brackett Road and agreed a donation for the pathway would improve pedestrian safety.

They also saw how residents were having trouble walking across Priest Road, he said, and anticipate more traffic when the store in February completes a 35,577-square-foot grocery store addition to the west side of the existing 113,000-square-foot Walmart store, which was also remodeled. Etchells told city officials that the store expects business to grow by as much as 30 percent with a Walmart grocery store addition. Nilles asked David Garlington, city engineer, and Public Works Director Paul Haines to allow him to build a park bench about halfway along the tenth-of-a-mile pathway, and they said they thought it was a good idea.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;It will give people a place to sit and rest,â&#x20AC;? Nilles said. Haines said the asphalt pathway will be 6 feet wide and extend on the south side of Brackett from the apartment complex sidewalk to Priest Road.

Seeking bids The city Public Works Department announced Wednesday it is seeking bids for construction of a pedestrian pathway on Brackett Road. The pathway will be about 6 feet wide by 1,150 feet long. The project will require clearing, grading, placing crushed rock and paving with hot-mix asphalt.

Jefferson County Social media â&#x20AC;&#x201D; in particular Facebook and Twitter â&#x20AC;&#x201D; have worked into the Black Friday equation in Jefferson County.

Board weighs Community Schoolâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s future Rebuilding long-term goal BY JEFF CHEW PENINSULA DAILY NEWS

SEQUIM â&#x20AC;&#x201D; School Board members might prefer to close the post-World War II Sequim Community School building if the money were available. But that is now a longterm goal since an architect estimates it will take more than $3 million to demolish and rebuild the structure on West Alder Street. The Sequim School District staff, should the board choose to do so in the future, proposes a Community School project that would require voter approval of a capital projects levy or bond issue to finance it. In the meantime, the districtâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s facilities committee and board members are looking at the affordability of securing a $200,000 to $300,000 loan to remodel the 71,000-square-foot structure so it can still be used, albeit temporarily, with improved energy efficiency and other upgrades. A board decision on how to approach the remodeling project must be made no later than Feb. 1, district officials said.

Community meeting The School Board has called a community meeting on the matter for 6 p.m. Wednesday in the buildingâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s commons, 220 W. Alder St. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll do our best to try to get the numbersâ&#x20AC;? to share at the meeting, district Superintendent Bill Bentley told the School Board on Monday night during a work session on the Community Schoolâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s future. Proposed in the short term is renovating the districtâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s base kitchen, home economics and wood shop class space, which was added on in 1979. Renovating it would cre-

ate usable class space for the Olympic Peninsula Academy. What to do over the long term with the 1950s-era Sequim Community School, which houses several programs for both the school district and other agencies, is under serious consideration. A district facilities committee report released in October describes the aging building on Alder Street as containing asbestos and having failing heating systems, old and outdated plumbing, and inadequate insulation for energy efficiency. The most recent report states that fuel oil to heat the building soared in cost to nearly $61,000 during the past school year. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Is that building worth good money being put into it? I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t think so,â&#x20AC;? said School Board Chairman John Bridge. Bentley said while the building should be remodeled in the short term, the district would be careful to not â&#x20AC;&#x153;go down a rat holeâ&#x20AC;? long term. Another strategic issue is where the board can house district programs elsewhere before the facility is closed. While work is done, expected for six to seven months after commencement in February, non-district programs will have to be relocated.

Programs housing Programs operated by the district and housed at the Community School include the alternative school, Developmental Preschool and Special Programs Administration. The district leases Community School space to Head Start, First Teacher, the Snap Program for those

The Clallam County Department of Healthâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s use of the facility is gratis.

â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Not cost-effectiveâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; â&#x20AC;&#x153;The prevailing judgment is that the continued operation of the building is not cost-effective or advisable in the immediate or long term,â&#x20AC;? the most recent report on the Community School building said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It is also noted the cost of renovating the structure is estimated to exceed the cost of building a new building.â&#x20AC;? Reconfiguring existing district facilities is the preferred option, the facilities

Bentley agreed, saying the meeting would be intended to establish a dialog and accept other possible approaches.

Sequim School Board to consider search firm for new superintendent BY JEFF CHEW PENINSULA DAILY NEWS

SEQUIM â&#x20AC;&#x201D; The Sequim School Board will consider selecting a search firm Dec. 5 to help find a new Sequim School District superintendent. The new schools chief would succeed Bill Bentley, who in early November announced he would retire effective June 30. School Board President John Bridges said the board will invite at least two firms to make presentations at a work session prior to the 7 p.m. Dec. 5 meeting. â&#x20AC;&#x153;What weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d like to do is choose one and get the search under way,â&#x20AC;? Bridges said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Then weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be able to get a time line outâ&#x20AC;? on filling

the position. Bentley, the Sequim School Districtâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s superintendent since April 2007, said he was leaving to pursue other interests after 23 years as an administrator at different school districts. Before coming to the Sequim district, Bentley was assistant superintendent of the 25,000-student Evergreen School District in Vancouver, Wash., to succeed former Superintendent Garn Christensen. He said he and his wife, Lorna, plan to keep a home in Sequim but also plan to spend time in Vancouver to

visit family. Bridges said he appreciates Bentley gave the board seven months to hire a successor, and Bentley said he did so to give the board more time to select his successor. The district has about 160 teachers, a staff of about 350 and more than 2,700 students, about the same as when he started in 2007.

Legislator gives civics lesson in PA PENINSULA DAILY NEWS

PORT ANGELES — State Rep. Kevin Van De Wege visited classrooms and talked with para-educators during Focus on Education Week earlier this month. Van De Wege taught a civics lesson to Franklin Elementary fourth-grade students in teacher Barry Burnett’s classroom during lunchtime Nov. 14. He talked about the different levels of government, from the local level to national. Discussion and questions ranged from who makes the laws to the present economy — all subject areas the students will focus on this year as part of their social studies curriculum. Van De Wege, D-Sequim, has served as a member of

the state House of Representatives since January 2007, representing the 24th District, which covers Clallam and Jefferson counties and part of Grays Harbor County. He now serves as majority whip with the House Democratic Caucus. Van De Wege’s other career as a lieutenant with the Sequim Fire Department also was of interest, and students had questions about fires and safety. The Port Angeles School District Para-educator Association hosted his visit to Port Angeles High School on Nov. 14. There, he visited teacher Judy Clayton’s social studies classroom and the library and spent time with paraeducators in both areas, learning about para-educa-

tor roles in and outside the classroom. “Para-educators’ responsibilities to support student learning are varied,” said Port Angeles Para-educator Association President Barb Gapper. “We provide direct instruction to students who need extra help in subjects like reading, writing and math. “We work with developmentally disabled specialeducation students in life skills classes.” “Para-educators now work in the community with students as part of the high school transition program,” PORT ANGELES SCHOOL DISTRICT she said. “Some of us work one-on- State Rep.

Land trust OKs farm’s conservation easement PENINSULA DAILY NEWS

SEQUIM — Finn Hall Farm, a 61-acre spread in the Dungeneness Valley, is now legally protected for agricultural use in perpetuity, the North Olympic Land Trust said. The final paperwork for the conservation easement for the farm, which has been operated by John and Carmen Jarvis since the 1950s, was signed Nov. 10, said Matthew Randazzo, land trust development director. Said Michele d’Hemecourt, the trust’s conservation director: “This has always been a project I feel very passionately about, so I am extremely excited to see it finally close. “Prime farmland soils

and iconic family farms like this one are the reasons people first came to the Dungeness Valley.” Finalizing the conservation easement agreement increases the number of farmland acres conserved by the land trust and its Friends of the Fields farmland division to 338, Randazzo said.

Since 2007 The land trust and Friends of the Fields have been pursuing the conservation of Finn Hall Farm, parts of which have been managed by the Jarvis family for almost a century, since 2007, when Friends of the Fields began the project prior to that organization’s merger with the land trust in 2010.

United Way raises 48 percent of $1 million goal PENINSULA DAILY NEWS

United Way of Clallam County has raised 48 percent of its fundraising goal for the year, its executive director announced this week. As of Tuesday, the nonprofit organization’s annual fund had received $482,000 from more than 1,200 donors, said Jody Moss,

director of Clallam County United Way. That’s 48 percent of its $1,002,011 goal for the year’s fundraising campaign. On Tuesday, the agency will mail a request for donations to all residents and businesses in Clallam County. “This mailing is intended to reach people who may

not give through a workplace, who are new to the community or are retired,” Moss said. “It is not a request for a second gift.” Last year, community members donated $953,000 to United Way, which allocates money to 25 partner agencies, all nonprofits, that provide health and human services.

“With very low overhead and countywide reach, United Way provides one of the best and simplest ways to support local needs,” Moss said. “This mailer is a way for everyone to have the opportunity to help their friends and neighbors.”

Safety net Pat Deja, president of the United Way Board of Directors, said the nonprofit “provides a strong safety net for children, adults and families in our community.” In addition to support of other agencies, United Way also has community initiatives, such as Literacy, Access to Healthcare, the 2-1-1 help line. It will kick off a new initiative in 2012 called “Great Beginnings,” which will pro-

vide early-learning support for new parents and others involved in the lives of new babies born across the county. Tom Baermann — owner of Pacific Office Equipment and co-chairman with his wife, Jackie Baermann, of this year’s campaign — urged everyone to donate. “If everyone in Clallam County sent in a donation, imagine the good we can do right here at home,” Baermann said. “We hope that community members who have not yet sent in their donations will remember to do so,” he said. “We know that members of Clallam County communities are extremely generous, and this is a time for those who are able to really dig deep and give as gener-

ously as possible.” Many are unemployed for the first time, while at the same time, state and local funds are being cut for services, Moss noted. “Charitable giving from county residents who are in the fortunate position to have enough is critically important as we work together to help those less fortunate,” she said. There are many options for giving to United Way: payroll deduction, check, credit card, PayPal, direct billing, IRA distribution or stock transfer. All donations are tax-deductible. Credit card or PayPal donations can be made at For more information about donating, visit the website or phone 360-4573011.

Saturday’s dinner and auction also drew more than 125 people, said Maitland Peet, executive director of Habitat. “It’s the most we’ve ever made,” he said. “It’s the best year so far.” Several major companies participated: Kitsap Bank, First Federal, Green Crow and Price Ford Lincoln Mercury, among others. The fundraiser at the Port Angeles Yacht Club featured wines and hors d’oeuvres from several local restaurants and wineries, and oysters barbecued to taste. The silent auction offered such items as a hotair balloon ride, a helicopter tour through the Olympics, a yacht cruise on the Strait of Juan de Fuca and a full auto detail. Proceeds go to the group’s mission of helping people get homes.

OLYMPIA — West Nile virus activity was considerably lower in 2011 than the year before, the state Department of Health said last week. Mosquito and deadbird monitoring and testing for West Nile virus has ended for the year, the department said in a statement Thursday. There were no human, bird or horse cases this year.

Only five samples Five mosquito samples with the virus were found in the state. That’s down from 126 positive samples in 2010. West Nile virus was detected in mosquito samples collected in Franklin, Grant and Yakima counties.

“No human cases were identified this year, but people should be aware that the virus is here and can cause serious illness,” said Maryanne Guichard, assistant secretary for the department, in a statement. Even though cold weather has reduced the risk of mosquito bites, the state Health Department encourages residents to take preventive action by dumping standing water from around homes and ensuring that gutters are clear of debris. Mosquito larvae can survive the winter, even in freezing conditions, the department said. West Nile virus is spread by infected mosquitoes and can cause illness in people, birds, horses and other animals. Details are available at

Alternative energy’s uphill battle DREAMS OF CLEAN renewable energy keep turning nightmarish. Most recently, RichMartha M. land-based Ireland Energy Northwest shuttered a 32-turbine wind farm on Radar Ridge in Pacific County, planned to serve public utility districts in Clallam and three other counties [“Clallam’s Role in Wind Project Blows Away,” PDN Nov. 18]. The Seattle Audubon Society and other environmental groups remained adamantly opposed to turbines on Radar Ridge, even after extensive peer-reviewed studies found no marbled murrelet nests at the site, few murrelets flying through and a risk level limited to possible harm to one bird every two years. The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service responded by proposing a $10 million mitigation fund; permit renewal after five years, not 30; bird-monitoring and daylight shutdown of the turbines for more than half the year, among other

restrictions. Clallam County Public Utility District invested $300,000 of the more than $4 million consumed by planning and permitting before all hope was abandoned of generating renewable energy at Radar Ridge. The wind energy proposal was prompted by Initiative 937, passed by 52 percent of voters statewide in 2006. I-937 requires increased reliance on renewable energy, such as wind, solar, tide, biomass, geothermal, landfill or sewage treatment gases and some biodiesel. Producing energy defined as “renewable” is significantly more expensive than traditional energy production, but advocates deem it worth the premium price because it is sustainable. I-937 specifically omits hydropower as an “eligible renewable resource,” reflecting the biases of those who celebrate the demise of the Elwha River dams. They want non-hydro energygeneration — but no wind turbines along Washington’s coastline. The Olympic Peninsula lacks the sun-power for large-scale solar, although solar panels decorate a growing number of private residences, as well as the Clallam County Courthouse and Serenity

Back to Discover Pass drawing board PROMISES ARE MADE to be broken, right? Right or not, I’m breaking one today. Remember a few months ago Seabury when I wrote Blair that I’d had my final word on Washington’s Discover Pass? I lied. And just so I don’t have to break another promise, I’m not going to tell you these are my final words on the subject. It turns out that the Discover Pass — which was created largely by state lawmakers without much thought (hardly the first time) — isn’t bringing in the

bucks it was supposed to. To review: the $10-per day, $30-$35 per year Discover Pass is required for a visit to any state park, Department of Natural Resources or Department of Fish and Wildlife lands. Sales of the pass were supposed to raise at least $64 million in the first two years, or $2.7 million per month. Right now, sales are averaging $2.2 million per month, but that figure is certain to drop now that winter is upon us. The state says if it doesn’t raise the money, it will close all 116 state parks and recreational lands administered by Department of Natural Resources and the Department of Fish and Wildlife. That is not only stupid, it is sure to cause widespread civil disobedience among outdoorsfolk

who aren’t likely to let state park boat ramps, camping and picnic grounds, trails and playgrounds go unused. State Sen. Kevin Ranker, D-Orcas Island, who wrote the first dumb version of the Discover Pass law, is rewriting it. I’d bet that the new version would be about as useless as training wheels on Lance Armstrong’s bike. One thing nobody thought would happen: The $10 one-day passes outsold annual passes. More than 185,000 day passes have been sold, compared with only 156,000 annual passes. The state Legislature has a lot more pressing problems than taxpayers’ outdoor recreation opportunities. So I can’t blame lawmakers if they don’t give this matter the careful and creative

thought it requires to come up with a plan that works. But they don’t even give serious problems that kind of consideration. Anyway, Sen. Rankin’s batteries are in serious need of recharging, so I suggest you send him your ideas about how to make the Discover Pass work. They are certain to be better than anything anyone in Olympia can conceive. I’ll even get things started by renewing my proposal of last July: Lower the cost of the annual pass to $20 and make it available as a sticky tab to put on your front license plate. You could elect to renew it every time you renewed your license tabs. Another proposal: Give a discount to anyone who

The small blessings of GOP debates THIS YEAR I am giving thanks for the Republican presidential debates. Didn’t see that one coming, did you? I have a real tolerance for Gail boring television, having Collins watched at least two series now on the air about people who bid on abandoned storage lockers, as well as several segments of the show about extreme coupon-collecting. So the debates are right up my alley. After the 10th or 11th episode, you get a feeling of up-close interaction previously reserved for people who live in Iowa and New Hampshire, where voters are so entitled that they find it hard to support anybody who hasn’t been to the house for dinner, or possibly a sleepover. You come to know everybody’s special gimmicks. Newt Gingrich will say something snotty to the moderators to show he hates the news media. Whenever Rick Perry gets lost in the verbal weeds, he has taken to demanding that Congress be made part time. Michele Bachmann points out that she’s had 23 foster children. Mitt Romney’s special thing is to swear that, unlike President Barack Obama, he will not apologize for the United States. Which Obama never did. Meanwhile, Romney’s campaign was running an ad in New Hampshire that purported to show Obama in 2008, saying: “If we keep talking about the

economy, we’re going to lose.” Which was actually Obama quoting John McCain’s campaign. Romney has a long and welldocumented history of changing his positions. This time around, he is apparently also planning to just make things up. But about the debates. My favorite this week was the Thanksgiving Family Forum, in which everybody in the race who isn’t a Mormon went to Iowa to compete for the love of the Christian right. This was the one in which Rick Perry assured the audience that because of his strong antiabortion stance he would immediately end the policy of sending China “billions of dollars” in American foreign aid. Who knew? Truly, it was the most interesting TV moment since I watched somebody bid way too much money for an abandoned storage locker containing fake leather furniture and a portrait of cats with big eyes. The CNN national security debate had fewer cheap thrills, although it was fun hearing Herman Cain call Wolf Blitzer “Blitz.” Also there was Bachmann’s description of her role in the debtceiling crisis. (“And my voice said this: I said it’s time for us to draw a line in the sand.”) It seemed to suggest she had come to see herself in the third person. Or maybe as an oracle. Or a ventriloquist. This week’s biggest drama was the Newt Has a Heart Moment, when Gingrich said he believed an undocumented immigrant who had “been here 25 years and you got three kids and two grandkids, you’ve been paying taxes and obeying the law, you belong to a local church” should be given some avenue to legal status. Bachmann instantly and

repeatedly claimed Newt was talking about “11 million people,” which sounds like one heck of a lot of 25-year-resident grandparents. “Amnesty is a magnet,” said Romney, who has spent two presidential campaigns branding his opponents as amnesty-givers. You could see Perry’s face light up. This was so clearly his moment to point out that Romney used to have illegal immigrants mowing his lawn. “Here we go again, Mitt. You and I, standing by each other again, and you used the words about the magnets,” Perry started. But you could almost hear the alarms going off. The candidates have been urged/bullied/blackmailed into avoiding personal attacks on one another. “And that’s one of the things that we obviously have to do, is to stop those magnets of — for individuals to come in here,” Perry concluded, retreating fast. On the plus side, there was the moment at the Family Forum when Rick Santorum explained how God had arranged his comefrom-behind win of a U.S. Senate seat in Pennsylvania. “And I really felt blessed that I knew at that moment, when I won, I had a constituency of One,” he burbled. Frank Luntz, the Republican pollster who served as moderator, asked Santorum what message God was sending when he then lost the seat — by what I believe was 17 percentage points. Santorum was momentarily silenced. Really thankful for that.

________ Gail Collins is a columnist for The New York Times. E-mail her via Maureen Dowd, whose column normally appears in this space, is off this week.

It’s harder every day she’s missing ON MARCH 5, my 18-yearold cousin disappeared from her University of Washington campus in Seattle. Marizela Perez — 5-footMichelle 5, 110 pounds, short black Malkin hair with brown/red highlights and bangs cut into an asymmetrical bob, wearing a dark hooded jacket, jeans and light brown suede boots — was last seen at a Safeway grocery that fateful Saturday afternoon. Marizela walked out the door and up Brooklyn Avenue, and hasn’t been seen or heard from since. Civil War historian Drew Gilpin Faust once described the “aching hearts” of families of the missing “in which the dread void of uncertainty” remains. In the first days and weeks after Marizela went missing, this feeling completely engulfed her parents, relatives and friends near and far. How to express the inexpressible? You try to breathe, but all that fills your lungs is that smoky, stifling uncertainty. You try to eat, but all you can taste is indigestible fear. You try to sleep, but all that comes is fathomless fatigue. Your heart is weighted with grief, but your soul refuses to mourn. You cling to hope and faith, tie a knot at the ends, and hang on with raw, blistered desperation. Whoever said “time heals all wounds” has only known superficial hurt. Sharp pangs of panic have metastasized into deep anguish over the past eight months. There have been no investigative leads. No witnesses have come forward. To the Police Department, as is the case with so many others like her, Marizela is just another bureaucratic burden.

In fact, for five full months, the Seattle police shockingly violated state code requiring law enforcement agencies to submit her DNA Perez information and dental X-rays to the Washington State Patrol within 30 days of her disappearance. After raising a ruckus, we were informed in late October that this legally mandated task was assigned to a “light duty” officer (never identified) who let it slip through the cracks. No one was held accountable for this negligence. Along the way, however, the kindness of complete strangers has been boundless. This holiday season, our heartfelt gratitude goes out to each and every person who has contributed to the search for Marizela, including: ■ Ned Cullen and the generous folks at ClearChannel Outdoor, who donated digital billboard space for missing persons alerts about Marizela all over the West Coast, from the Seattle area to Salem, Ore., San Francisco, Sacramento, Los Angeles, Phoenix and Las Vegas. ■ The staff of the King County Superior Court and the staff of the King County Medical Examiner’s office, foremost among them forensic anthropologist Dr. Kathy Taylor for her professionalism, dedication to and compassion for families of the missing. ■ Countless bloggers, Twitter users, and YouTube and Facebook users from across the political spectrum and from every walk of life who took time to spread the word about Marizela’s disappearance from Day One. ■ Melanie Helmick of K-9 Kampus in Arkansas; search-andrescue team leader Michael Lueck from Texas; Steve Yerger of K9 Centurion and his daughter Rebecca in Maryland; Don and Austin Davidson; dog handlers

Mary Haislet, Shannon Kiley and Melissa Ellis; and Seattle Parks and Recreation Department staffers Sandy Demerit and Laura Nepler. ■ KCPQ, Q13 Fox, KIRO-TV, KING 5-TV, Christine Clarridge and David Boardman of The Seattle Times, the University of Washington student daily, Seattle radio hosts John Carlson, David Boze and Dori Monson, and many other Pacific Northwest-area readers, local media outlets and allies who gave their broadcast air, pages and personal time to the case. “America’s Most Wanted,”, Fox News and, Human Events, Intermarkets, To Write Love on Her Arms, and several missing persons’ advocacy groups, who all helped alert national audiences and followers to Marizela’s disappearance. ■ Friends behind the scenes who have offered invaluable legal, technical and investigative help, advice and counsel. ■ Church communities, fundraising organizers and too many more to name from South Jersey to Seattle and beyond who have helped with our ongoing search efforts. On her left inner arm, Marizela has a tattoo that reads “Lahat ay magiging maayos.” Her friends transformed the saying into a tribute bracelet in her favorite color: bright orange. It’s Tagalog for “Everything’s going to be OK.” This has become a credo in the ongoing search for Marizela — and it is also a fitting Thanksgiving weekend message: To smile through tears. To savor the sweet over the bitter. To find a way, with the help of God, family and friends, to count our blessings even (and especially) in the midst of great angst. Because in the end: “All will be well.”

Ranging over farm and forest regardless of height. He described his U-cut operation as “community-minded and environmentally progressive” because he recycles old Christmas trees any time of the year at no cost. Lazy J has a gift shop where Christmas wreaths, organic apples, pears, potatoes and garlic are sold. Johnson provides Christmas trees to Boy Scout groups and business in Port Angeles, Sequim and Port Townsend. For those living in East Jefferson County or the West End of Clallam County, the best place to fell a Christmas tree is Olympic National Forest.

Some prefer to cut own holiday tree BY ROB OLLIKAINEN PENINSULA DAILY NEWS

Some like them big. Some like them small. Others want their Christmas trees to be downright strange, Lazy J Tree Farm owner Steve Johnson said. “I’m amazed by what goes out of here sometimes,” said Johnson, longtime owner of the U-cut tree farm at 225 Gehrke Road between Port Angeles and Sequim. “I’ve had some really strange trees.” With Thanksgiving in the rearview mirror, many families have turned their attention to finding that perfect Christmas tree. For some, part of the adventure is cutting it down with a handsaw. Lazy J offers a variety of Christmas trees that cost $6 per foot, including tax. Johnson provides the saw. Most of the trees at Lazy J are noble fir or Douglas fir, with patches of Turkish fir and Sequoia dotting the 60-acre tree lot.

National forest permits

Most popular Johnson said noble fir is most popular because it tends to last the longest. “It’s the Cadillac, they say, of Christmas trees,” said Ken Nattinger, who owns Deer Park Tree Farm 4.2 miles up Deer Park Road east of Port Angeles. “It keeps its form.” Nattinger at 4227 Deer Park Road has Douglas, noble and grand firs as well as

travelers, is open from dawn to dusk seven days per week. Nattinger’s prices are the same as Johnson’s: $6 per

foot of height. Johnson also has a “bargain field” where he occasionally sells trees at $20 each,

Permits to allow cutting of Christmas trees in the forest are available at offices in Forks, Brinnon, Quilcene and Quinault. The permits cost $5 each — payable by cash or check only — and can be purchased during regular business hours Mondays through Fridays, with special weekend hours at some locations. Each permit allows the holder to cut one tree from the forest. Permits must be purchased from the district offices for the area where the tree will be cut. Maps and information about cutting locations will be provided with each sale. Permits can be purchased at: ■ Hood Canal Ranger District Office in Quilcene at 295142 U.S. Highway 101.

Bias probe begun in Calif. city

Link between gratitude, humility, faith


LOMITA, Calif. — A land-use decision by the city of Lomita to stop an Islamic center from expanding has become the subject of a federal investigation to determine whether the decision was guided by religious discrimination. This week, federal investigators interviewed 13 people who were involved in the March 2010 decision to deny an application for expansion from the Islamic Center of South Bay. City officials said the unanimous land-use decision was made based on space constraints, not religion. “It surprises me that the federal government would spend so many resources second-guessing this pretty basic land-use decision,” Lomita City Attorney Christi Hogin told the Los Angeles Times. But Islamic Center officials said they believe the city has violated laws that prohibit discrimination against religious institutions. “There was a feeling that they just don’t want us here” at the March meeting, said Iraj Ershaghi, a founding member of the center. Ershaghi said City Council members bowed to pressure from residents to reject the proposal.

ON THIS THANKSGIVING Day weekend, it’s natural and appropriate to reflect on the quality of gratitude. Gratitude, I believe, is a fundamental quality of a life that has any kind of spiritual substance to it at all. It’s hard for me to imagine a developed human being whose spirit does not include a generous portion of gratitude. The 14th-century Italian poet Dante reserved the ninth and bottommost rung of hell for the ungrateful. In his Inferno, which is the opening part of his epic poem The Divine Comedy, the ungrateful were punished by being forever frozen in postures of deference that they had failed to observe in their lifetimes, indicating Dante’s sense that the ungrateful are those who have overestimated their place in the scheme of things, who have believed themselves to be entitled. Thus, Dante links gratitude and humility. What is humility?

Humility has to do with recognizing your proper place in the scheme of things — not at the center of the universe, but as a small part of a much larger reality. It also has to do with recognizing that you are not self-made, that everything that you are and have — including what you regard as “your rights” — is given to you and, thus, to be received as a gift. The capacity for gratitude is therefore linked to this posture of humility — of knowing your place in the scheme of things and of receiving life as a gift. But let me also note here that humility is not the opposite of self-worth. Actually, humility requires a sense of selfworth — “Yes, I am of value; yes, I have a right to be here.” Humility has to have something to work on. The capacity for gratitude and the possibility of experiencing and expressing gratitude is rooted in a sense of self-worth, selflove and self-value —

Jewish proverb The proverb goes as follows: “A person must have two pockets in which to reach. In one pocket are kept the words, ‘I am divine.’ And in the other pocket are kept the words, ‘I am dust and ashes.’” It’s out of the combination of these two understandings — a sense of one’s self-worth, on the one hand, and a sense of one’s finiteness, on the other — that the capacity for gratitude is born. One final thought: I think one’s capacity to be grateful ought naturally to expand if a life unfolds as it is designed to unfold. As one grows older and gains more life experience, one ought naturally to live in the paradox of the aforementioned Jewish proverb. That is, as one gains life experience there is an enlargement both of one’s sense of self-worth, dignity and divinity and of one’s sense of finiteness, littleness and limitations. Such is the paradox of our lives. Such is the paradox out of which the capacity for gratitude is born.

“There’s someBode thing here of value for which to be grateful.” It’s hard for me to imagine that a person who hated his or her own life could be grateful. For gratitude to be present, you have to have something for which to be grateful.

Midsize car sales shrink as buyers pick smaller vehicles BY DEE-ANN DURBIN THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

DETROIT — You can’t drive far in the U.S. without seeing a Toyota Camry, Honda Accord or Ford Fusion. Midsize sedans have been America’s favorite cars for decades. That’s changing. More people are choosing small cars like the Chevrolet Cruze and even smaller ones like the Honda Fit because they’re worried about gas prices and car payments. There’s another reason, too: Small cars are no longer the cramped econoboxes of the 1980s and 1990s, and they have many of the same features as larger cars. Compact cars will outsell midsize ones as early as this year, forecasts J.D. Power and Associates, a marketing information firm. That hasn’t happened in at least two decades.

20 percent of sales Just five years ago, automakers sold nearly 250,000 more midsize cars than compact cars in the U.S. Gas was cheaper then, and automakers had fewer small models to sell. But by 2015, J.D. Power expects compact and subcompact cars to command 20 percent of sales, while midsize cars will account for just 14 percent. For most of the past 15 years, the Camry has been America’s best-selling car. And Toyota wants it to stay that way. This fall, the Japanese company released a new version that increases

$ Briefly . . . New store to open its doors today PORT ANGELES — Havoc, an apparel and tobacco accessories shop, will open in the old Papa Murphy’s location at 801 E. Front St. at 10 a.m. today.

Ridge shuttle set


Workers give the final checkup to a 2012 Honda Accord Tourer at Honda Motor Co.’s Saitama Factory in Sayama, Japan, in April. More Americans are choosing small cars. fuel economy to 35 miles per gallon and sells for even less than the old model. But it’s facing tough competition from smaller cars such as the Hyundai Elantra, which gets 40 mpg and costs $5,000 less. Elantra sales surged 46 percent to 161,000 through October, while Camry sales fell 9 percent to 251,000. The Elantra isn’t the only competition. For a brief period this year after the Japanese earthquake, the Chevrolet Cruze unseated the Camry as the best-selling car in the country. Melanie Jackson, 29, a paramedic, went shopping for a midsize car last summer but wound up with a two-door Honda Civic coupe because she was wowed by its fuel economy. She said

the Civic can easily fit her three sons, their backpacks, football equipment and groceries. And she averages 38 mpg and spends only $30 a week on gas. “I forget how to put gas in the car because I do it so rarely,” Jackson said. Here are some reasons for the growing appeal of small cars: ■ Today’s small cars have all the bells and whistles. Unlike the strippeddown models of earlier decades, small cars offer all the amenities of bigger models, like leather seats, satellite radio and keyless entry. ■ Small cars are cheaper. An Elantra starts at $16,445 but can be loaded up with leather seats, a navigation system, a rear-

view camera and other features that raise the price tag to $23,305. To get a midsize Hyundai Sonata with those same features, buyers have to pay $6,000 more. ■ Small cars are roomier. The 2012 Ford Focus compact is nearly 8 inches longer and 5 inches wider than the Ford Escort — the car it replaced — was a decade ago. That means buyers don’t need to move up to a midsize just to stretch their legs. The Environmental Protection Agency defines compact cars as having 100 to 109 cubic feet of passenger and cargo space, while midsize cars have 110 to 119 cubic feet. That gives automakers plenty of room to play with.

OLYMPIA — If Starbucks chief Howard Schultz wants voters to withhold campaign cash from federal politicians, he may need to start with trying to halt the flow of donations coming from the people who work for him. Starbucks leadership, employees and the company’s lobbying firm have continued to contribute thousands of dollars to federal officeholders despite Schultz’s urging, according to campaign records reviewed by The Associated Press.

Wants bipartisan deal

Microsoft signs agreement to get closer look at Yahoo BY MICHAEL LIEDTKE THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

Company’s lobbyist The lobbying firm that handles much of Starbucks’ work in the nation’s capital, K&L Gates, has continued to donate through its political action committee to current and prospective members of Congress — some $40,000 from the start of the pledge through the end of September. Meanwhile, two members of the company’s board of directors, which Schultz leads as chairman, also gave donations after the vow was announced. Mellody Hobson, a Star-

bucks board member who donated $1,500 to U.S. Rep. Steny Hoyer, said she has not signed the pledge. Sheryl Sandberg, a Facebook executive who serves on the Starbucks board and recently gave donations to House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi and Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand, declined comment through a spokesman.

CEO donated too Schultz himself donated campaign cash in the months before his announcement, giving $5,000 to U.S. Sen. Maria Cantwell, D-Wash. He has not given since, according to campaign records. Arthur Rubinfeld, one of Schultz’s closest aides as president of global development at Starbucks, gave a $500 donation to Cantwell just a few days before Schultz went public with his plan.

Raw milk recall OLYMPIA — A Tenino creamery is recalling raw milk products that may be contaminated with E. coli bacteria. A statement distributed by the Washington Agriculture Department at the request of Cozy Vale Creamery said Wednesday the unpasteurized milk products were distributed through seven retail outlets in Thurston and Pierce counties. They include whole milk, skim milk and cream. Agriculture Department testing found locations in the milking parlor and processing area that were contaminated with E. coli. The creamery and agency are investigating the source of the problem. Three illnesses have been reported in Cozy milk customers since August. E. coli infections can cause severe diarrhea, stomach cramps and bloody stool. Affected products had “best if used by” dates up to and including Dec. 6. They were sold at the farm store and at Marlene’s Market in Tacoma, two Olympia Food Co-op locations in Olympia, Olympia Local Foods in Tumwater, Yelm Co-op in Yelm, Mt. Community Co-op in Eatonville and Marlene’s Market in Federal Way. Peninsula Daily News and The Associated Press

SAN FRANCISCO — It looks as if Microsoft wants a seat at the negotiating table if Yahoo decides to sell part or all of its business. To gain better access, Microsoft Corp. has signed a nondisclosure agreement with Yahoo Inc., according to a person familiar with the situation. The person spoke to The Associated Press on Wednesday on the condition of anonymity because the agreement hasn’t been formally announced. The DealReporter and The New York Times earlier reported the arrangement between Microsoft and Yahoo. Yahoo’s board has been

mulling the company’s options since firing CEO Carol Bartz in early September. The alternatives include selling Yahoo’s Asian assets, such as the Alibaba Group in China, and auctioning off the company in its entirety instead of hiring a new CEO. Tim Morse, Yahoo’s chief financial officer, has been interim CEO since Bartz’s ouster. The DealReporter said Yahoo’s board is scheduled to meet next week to discuss its next step. Microsoft unsuccessfully tried to buy Yahoo in 2008 for as much as $47.5 billion before walking away in frustration.

Fortune magazine cited in naming Schultz its “Businessperson of the Year” last week. There’s no evidence the “withhold” movement has had any impact on the flow of money in politics, as third-quarter donations to congressional campaigns were actually higher than during the last election cycle. In just the six weeks after the coffee guru announced his pledge with the support of dozens of other business executives, the donations continued among many of those companies, including AOL, Juniper Networks and NASDAQ. Walter Robb, the co-CEO of Whole Foods and a top supporter of the movement, gave an in-kind donation to a congressional campaign in September after taking Schultz’s vow. He said through a

replacement during a free Wooden Boat Wednesday next week. Greenlee will speak at the Chandlery at the Northwest Maritime Center, 431 Water St., from noon to 1:30 p.m. He will discuss and demonstrate how to remove old or damaged fiberglass cloth from a wooden boat and how to apply new fiberglass. “The removal process requires minimal tools, is surprisingly easier than you might think and doesn’t really require any special skill,” said Greenlee. “And just like removal, the fiberglass application is easy to do. With just a little bit of knowledge and only $10 worth of tools, you can have your small boat, kayak or canoe back on the water in no time.” This event will include a

“show-and-tell” demonstration for attendees to see the process step by step. Greenlee will discuss how to know when to replace fiberglass cloth on boats, whether fiberglass is dangerous to handle and what special tools are needed for this process and more. Greenlee founded Port Townsend-based Redfish Custom Wooden Kayak & Canoe Co. in 1992. The company and its products have been featured on PBS and in notable magazines such as Architectural Digest, Town & Country, Lexus, Wooden Boat, Money Magazine, Small Business, Men’s Journal and Sunset Magazine — where Redfish Kayaks was profiled as the “Best of the West.”

Raining on the parade GET THOSE BAG-holding hands ready. Start practicing those half-hearted nods, weak smiles and parallel-parking skills. Thanks to all the rain that fell Matt on the North Schubert Olympic Peninsula in the past few days, you’re not getting out of holiday shopping this weekend. The steelhead will have to wait . . . at least for a few days. “It’s going to be pretty testy,” Bob Gooding of Olympic Sporting Goods (360-374-6330) in Forks said Wednesday afternoon. “[Rivers] were pretty high and dirty [Tuesday], and I went and looked this morning and they were higher and dirtier. “If it rains anymore at all [today], it looks pretty grim through the weekend. You’re going to be able to go plunking, but as far as good fishing, it’s going pretty tough.” Yes, the traditional start of the winter steelhead season — Thanksgiving — appears to be a bit of a nonstarter. Just about every river on the Peninsula is punched and likely to stay that way if the wetness persists. Perhaps one might be able to sneak away to a smaller stream like the Hoko or Lyre and pick off a few steelies. But even that’s a longshot. “There’s going to be no fishing. It’s mud lake,” Wally Butler of Swain’s General Store (360-452-2357) in Port Angeles said on Wednesday. “I went over Morse Creek this morning, and it was just rolling hot chocolate. It doesn’t look good. “The one thing a guy might be able to do is go plunking down by the Rayonier bridge down on the Bogachiel.” Make sure to have the pole on the ready, however. Before things got damp, anglers were hooking a fair amount of steelhead on the Bogachiel River. Expect a whole bunch more fish to be there when the rivers start dropping. The winter hatchery steelhead run always picks up steam in late November — and typically runs strong all the way into January. “When the water starts to drop, move and move fast,” Brian Menkal of Brian’s Sporting Goods and More (360-683-1950) in Sequim said. “The next couple of weeks ought to be the best time for the Bogachiel Hatchery run.”

Snowy owl invasion Birders might should keep a lookout for snowy owls. According to Dungeness River Audubon Center Director Bob Boekelheide, this may very well be an irruption year for the rare raptors. A small number have already been spotted around Dungeness Valley recently, he said. “They usually hang out near the Strait, like at Dungeness Spit and Ediz Hook, but they may also show up in towns, usually sitting on some high perch like a housetop or telephone pole,” Boekelheide wrote in an email. There have been just seven irruption years for snowy owls since 1977. Of course, one of the reasons we know that is because of the information gathered at events like the Christmas Bird Count. The River Center will hold a warmup for the annual event Sunday, Dec. 10, at Railroad Bridge Park. The warmup runs from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Admiralty Audubon will have a count on the Quimper Peninsula on Saturday, Dec. 17, while the SequimDungeness Christmas Count will be held Monday, Dec. 19.

Washington State’s Marshall Lobbestael once again takes over at quarterback as the Cougars get ready to play Washington at CenturyLink Field on Saturday.

Always a bridesmaid Oak Harbor QB consistently Washington State’s 2nd pick BY NICHOLAS K. GERANIOS THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

SPOKANE — If there was a college football award for reliever of the year, Washington State quarterback Marshall Lobbestael would certainly win. Lobbestael has spent his four years moving in and out of the starting lineup in relief of injured quarterbacks. He’ll do it one more time this Saturday when he starts the Apple Cup game against archrival Washington.

“It is similar to a relief pitcher, I guess,” Lobbestael said Wednesday. “You’ve got to be locked in at all times.” Lobbestael opened this season as the backup to Jeff Tuel. But Tuel went down with a fractured collarbone on his opening series of the season and Lobbestael started the next four games before Tuel came back against Stanford. Tuel reinjured his collarbone against Oregon State, bringing Lobbestael back as the starter until he was outplayed by fresh-

MOSES LAKE — The Neah Bay Red Devils have been here before. Twice in the past two years, in fact. Now, the trick for the perennial Class 1B football power is to get one more victory and make it to the state championship game. Neah Bay (10-2 overall) will make its third straight appearance in the 1B semifinals when it takes on Odessa-Harrington (8-3) at Lions Field in Moses Lake on Saturday at 3 p.m. The last two appearances ended with blowout defeats, both at the hands of Northwest Football League rival Lummi. With the Red Devils finally slaying that Blackhawk dragon last week in a 58-40 come-from-behind victory, this might be the time they move on to the finals. It would be just the third time in school history that Neah Bay made it that far in the eight-man football state tournament. The last championship game appearance came back in 1999. The other was in 1989. Both teams lost. In Friday’s opponent, the Red Devils face a Northeast League-South Division foe with a lot of state football history behind it as well. Odessa-Harrington has 18 state appearances to its name, including two state titles, four runner-up finishes and eight semifinal trips total.

Hunting CONTINUED FROM B9 Now all that’s left on the big game front is the late archery and muzzleloader seasons for deer and elk in select Game Management Units (GMUs). “They got a few bucks, but nothing like they normally do,” Butler said of the late buck hunt. “We actually didn’t get any big three-points in [Swain’s antler contest] at all.” Cooler weather and high elevation snow might turn things around during the last couple weeks of big game season. Late muzzleloader deer season is open in the Pysht GMU through Dec. 15, while late archery deer runs through Dec. 15 in the Hoko, Sol Duc, Goodman, Clearwater and Matheny GMUs. Late muzzleloader elk goes until Dec. 15 in the Hoko and Matheny, and late archery elk lasts until Dec. 15 in the Pysht, Goodman and Clearwater. “If there’s snow up high it will help,” Butler said. “It drives them down out of the high country. “The pressure seems to back off on the elk [in the late seasons] and they’ve got to get out and feed because of the less hours. That will help the elk hunters quite a bit.”

“Marshall has really had a tremendous season.” A product of Oak Harbor High School, Lobbestael redshirted in 2007. He was the third-string quarterback in 2008, but was thrown in when Gary Rogers and Kevin Lopina were both injured. He played in five games and started three before his season ended with an ACL injury. Lobbestael was still hampered by the knee injury in 2009, but managed to play in eight games and start three as a sophomore, splitting time with Lopina and the freshman Tuel. Lobbestael played in the 2009 Apple Cup in relief of Lopina. He remembers being knocked around in what turned out to be a 30-0 loss in Seattle. “I got my bell rung a little bit,” Lobbestael said. “It was a rough game.” Last season, with Tuel entrenched as the starter, Lobbestael did mop-up duty in six games, throwing just 15 passes. He did not play in last year’s 35-28 Apple Cup loss in Pullman. Lobbestael figures he is more prepared to play the game this year, as it will be his ninth start of the season. “We’ve had more success than that season,” he said. “I feel more prepared.” The injury woes have obscured the fact that WSU’s three quarterbacks have produced a statistically outstanding season. Combined, the three have completed 59.6 percent of their passes for 3,524 yards, with 27 touchdowns and 11 interceptions (four of which Halliday threw in one game). Their average of 320 passing yards per game ranks ninth in the nation.

Honorable Mention: Jewel Johnson (Port Townsend), Mia Henderson (Port Townsend), Leena Karppinen (Forks), Shelby Lott (Sequim), Maeve Harris (Sequim), Shayla Northern (Port Angeles).

Soccer: PA connection CONTINUED FROM B9 “I would agree with that,” Moseley said, “especially with me playing a little bit back more [in the midfield] we were able to talk a lot whether it was marking up or pushing up. “It was good to have that chemistry between us.” Perhaps one of the greatest reasons for that chemistry is the fact that neither player’s role has changed much since they first began playing together. Moseley has always been the one up front making the offense hum. Rodocker has always been the one in the back cleaning things up. And neither would have it any other way. “It’s been a lot of fun,” Moseley said. “The more we play together, the more we get to know each other and push each other to be better.” This year, both pushed Port Angeles to new heights.

Won honors Rodocker was named a first-team All-Olympic League defender, thanks to her physical, hard-crashing style of play. She drew the raves of opposing coaches after matches, leading a defense

“The more we play together, the more we get to know each other and push each other to be better.” KATHRYN MOSELEY Port Angeles midfielder that surrendered an average of just 1.3 goals per game. Moseley was given second-team honors after leading the league in assists with eight and scoring seven goals. Due in large part to those efforts, Port Angeles won more matches (8) than it had during any other season in the past 10 years. The Riders also came within a victory of its first state trip in 25 years. That capped a threeyear run that saw Port Angeles match the program record for consecutive playoff appearances with three in a row. “I think what really changed it was the girls realized how good they actually could be, they actually started believing it,” said Rodocker, who, like Moseley, started all three seasons. “When you lose a game you believe that you are defeated for a while, but what makes a good soccer team is the building off that defeat.

“I think the girls sophomore year and on developed the mind set that we are a good team.” Moseley said she is done with her competitive soccerplaying career. Instead, the senior honors student is content to go to Azusa Pacific University in Southern California and study graphic design. Rodocker, however, plans to move on to Peninsula College and play for the NWAACC runner-up Pirates next fall. For the first time in years, she’ll have to do it without Moseley out on the pitch with her. “It’s definitely going to be hard to adjust to,” Rodocker said. “But every season brings it’s challenges. “I guess that’s going to be my challenge next season is playing with another group of players. “I’m looking forward to seeing how I play next year without one of my key friends out there, but I know she’ll support me.”

“Wild Olympics is good for the Harbor’s small businesses.” -Mark and Desiree Dodson, Owners, Westport Inn, Westport, WA

The Olympic Peninsula and our beautiful coast draw visitors from all over. During our 22 years in Westport, we’ve watched people come here to fish, clam, surf, birdwatch, hike, camp, beachcomb and otherwise enjoy our wild coast. They stay in motels like ours, eat in local restaurants, shop in area stores, or choose to make their homes here–keeping our community’s cash registers ringing. In Grays Harbor County, travel spending alone brought in more than $253 million in 2009–directly supporting 4,900 jobs–nearly 16 percent of our county’s employment.

Neah Bay

Neah Bay

The Wild Olympics proposal will permanently protect the same treasures that draw these people to the Harbor–our unique low elevation ancient rainforests, sparkling wild rivers and crystal–clear water, and our abundant birds, wildlife and salmon runs. These priceless natural assets are the very foundation of both our tourism and fishing industries, and deserve the full, permanent protection Wild Olympics would provide. Tailor made by local input for access and sensitivity to the timber base, Wild Olympics will help ensure a bright economic future for all of us.

Hall is hard-pressed to answer the question about which “Chaps!” songs are her favorites. But off she goes, breathless, as if she’s on a galloping horse: “There’s a really pretty song. Most cowboy music, you don’t think of as pretty. But our lead girl, Carissa Bowlby, has this song called ‘Cattle Call.’ It’s just beautiful. “And there are wonderfully rollicking songs, like ‘Ride, Cowboy, Ride.’ If it goes any faster, I don’t know how we could do it.” That one’s an ensemble piece, at full speed with the

four members of the band on stage with the cast. “I’m so proud of these guys,” Hall says of the performers, who will step up tonight in the Port Angeles Community Playhouse at 1235 E. Lauridsen Blvd. Then there are other toe-tappers, like “Tumblin’ Tumbleweeds” and “Sioux City Sue,” amid a whole lot of comedy — along with heartfelt sentiment, she adds.

WW II setting “Chaps!” is set in 1942 during World War II, so it has women working the jobs that previously went to men. One is Alice, the radio control booth engineer played by Janessa Fodge; her sister, Jennifer Fodge, plays a radio actor, while Bowlby portrays a traveling band’s tour manager. They’re all surrounded, all engulfed by unplanned hilarity in “Chaps!,” as the entertainers who were supposed to put on a holiday radio revue don’t show up.

The cast has been plagued by illness and holiday busyness, which is why the director had to step into the Archie role. He and Hall are delighted with what has taken shape. “Chaps!” has a crack quartet of musicians alongside the actors: Port Angeles High School bandleader Ron Jones singing and playing guitar — “he is wonderful,” Hall says KATE CARTER — Phil Morgan-Ellis on fiddle — “he’s doing a tremen“Chaps!” starring, from left, Carissa Bowlby, Jennifer Fodge, Peter Hanes, dous job; you’ve got to hear Jim Lind and Robert Sommers, is the highly irreverent cowboy musical him” — and Adri Rainwaopening tonight at the Port Angeles Community Playhouse. ter and Bob Haick sharing the drumming.

Raising their voices in holiday joy


PTâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Community Chorus to give pair of concerts PENINSULA SPOTLIGHT

PORT TOWNSEND â&#x20AC;&#x201D; The Community Chorus of Port Townsend and East Jefferson County will offer a holiday message of peace in the coming days, with two concerts in the Chimacum and Port Townsend high school auditoriums. The 75-voice chorus, with director Rebecca Rottsolk and pianist Lisa Lanza, will step up at 3 p.m. this Sunday at Chimacum High School, 91 West Valley Road, and again at 3 p.m. next Sunday, Dec. 4, at Port Townsend High School at 1500 Van Ness. Tickets are $12 at Crossroads Music, 2100 Lawrence St., and at the door.

As she assembled the program, Rottsolk sought holiday music to reflect cultures from around the world. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The songs celebrate seasonal joy, the spirit of giving, some good humor and our yearning for peace in our lives,â&#x20AC;? she writes in her program notes.

From many traditions The rhythmic Native American hallelujah called â&#x20AC;&#x153;Heleluyan,â&#x20AC;? arranged by Nancy Grundahl, is one highlight; thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s also a West Indian carol, â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Virgin Mary Had a Baby Boy,â&#x20AC;? complete with a calypso combo. The concert theme song, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Many Faces, One Song,â&#x20AC;? fuses three traditions: the familiar

Rebecca Rottsolk Chorus director Hebrew tune â&#x20AC;&#x153;Shalom Chaverim,â&#x20AC;? a peace chant from the Ojibwa nation and a traditional song from the sea islands off South Carolina and Georgia.

singing as a natural form of expression proved to be a force for peace in 1989, when a non-violent human chain of protesters â&#x20AC;&#x201D; stretching 370 miles across three Baltic states â&#x20AC;&#x201D; spearheaded Estoniaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s independence from the Soviet Union. â&#x20AC;&#x153;A Musicological Journey through the 12 Days of Christmas,â&#x20AC;? a showcase of Lanzaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s playing, is also on the program for the two Sundays, as is â&#x20AC;&#x153;Dona Nobis Pacemâ&#x20AC;? from Bachâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Mass in B minor.

Teen ensemble A teen girlsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; ensemble, assembled by Rottsolk and Port Townsend singer Leslie Lewis especially for these concerts, will join the rest of the chorus for three numbers: a brand-new song titled â&#x20AC;&#x153;Da Pacemâ&#x20AC;? and the â&#x20AC;&#x153;Many Faces, One

Songâ&#x20AC;? theme, both composed by Paul Caldwell and Sean Ivory, and â&#x20AC;&#x153;Silent Night.â&#x20AC;? The girls are â&#x20AC;&#x153;smart, capable singers who add a beautiful color to the songs,â&#x20AC;? Rottsolk said.

Place to sing â&#x20AC;&#x153;For those of us who love to sing, but may not have the courage, the opportunity or the ability to strike out on our own, the Community Chorus offers us a chance to contribute to something larger than ourselves,â&#x20AC;? added chorus president Peggy Albers. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Each member willingly takes on the challenge of learning new music, working together in harmony, and creating a gift from our hearts.â&#x20AC;?

With songs in their hearts

‘Sing with “The Sound of Music”’ brings family fun to PA theater BY DIANE URBANI DE LA PAZ PENINSULA SPOTLIGHT

PORT ANGELES — We’ve all heard that the hills are alive with “The Sound of Music.” What’s new is that the Olympic Mountains will soon act as reflectors for abundant glee — and, perchance, yodeling. “The Sound of Music,” that 1965 film about Maria the novice nun-turnedstepmother to the von Trapp family, is coming to the Little Theater at Peninsula College this Saturday night. This will not, mind you, be a mere movie screening.

Local characters “The Sound” will be the backdrop for an all-new cast of characters — local singers, dancers and actors — who will lead the live audience in a singalong of the soundtrack. That means “Climb Ev’ry Mountain,” “Sixteen Going on Seventeen,” “(How Do You Solve a Problem like) Maria,” “Do-Re-Mi,” “The Lonely Goatherd,” “My Favorite Things,” “Edelweiss,” “So Long, Farewell” Sarah Tucker, left, portrays the Baroness in Saturday night’s and of course the title song, audience-participation screening of “The Sound of Music,” which starts out like this: while her daughters Celeste, 7, foreground, and Zoe, 12, portray The hills are alive with Gretel and Brigitta von Trapp, respectively. the sound of music

Julie Andrews and Christopher Plummer star in t coming to Port Angeles as an audience participa With songs they have sung for a thousand years The hills fill my heart with the sound of music My heart wants to sing every song it hears. The hosts of “Sing with ‘The Sound of Music’” hope to hear that last line come true. These hosts are the folks at the Juan de Fuca Festival of the Arts, that May extravaganza of music, dance and visual art in Port Angeles. They’re showing the movie and urging people to not only sing, but also to dress up as nuns, von Trapp children — or anyone or -thing in the movie.

Master of ceremonies Richard Stephens, a pillar of the theater community and a Juan de Fuca supporter, will serve as master of ceremonies, so you would think he would wear a tuxedo or at least a suit. But no. Stephens has also been called to fill another key role: the Reverend Mother, who helps Maria decide whether or not to leave the convent

and marry Capt. von Trapp (the elegant Christopher Plummer in the film). Fortunately, Stephens is a costume designer, so he has been sewing a nun’s habit to wear all evening. He envisions, too, a theater full of irreverent getups inspired by the movie. “I am really hoping,” he says, “to see people in outfits made of curtains,” like the ones Maria made for the von Trapp kids.

Going all out Sarah Tucker, a local artist and Juan de Fuca Festival board member, is going all-out as the Baroness, Capt. von Trapp’s lady friend. Tucker will portray her in all her icy glory, in a wax-paper dress. And Tucker’s daughters Zoe, 12, and Celeste, 7, will appear as the captain’s daughters Brigitta and Gretel, respectively. “The kids are absolutely in love” with this movie, Tucker says. And for her part, she’s looking forward to playing up the Baroness’ uptightness.

“I’ll probably change a couple of times,” she adds; the Baroness will get more and more ridiculous as the evening progresses. To fill out “The Sound,” the brand-new Peninsula College Glee Club will supply more song leaders. Among them are Brittany Brabant as Maria; Erica Harris as Liesl, the eldest von Trapp child; Kevin Febryan as her sweetheart Rolf; and Ralph Davisson as Capt. von Trapp.


Thanksgiving weekend. All the singing and frolicking — this movie runs nearly three hours, as you may recall — could burn off some calories. “Don’t be shy about dressing up,” Maguire says, adding a suggestion for those without nun’s habits: a big brown bag, as in “brown paper packages tied up with strings” in the song “My Favorite Things.” There will be prizes, he promised, for the best costumes.
